Tachiai has just learned that Komusubi Kaisei has withdrawn from the 2018 Kyushu Basho. The big Brazilian has withdrawn from the November tournament after suffering a muscle tear in his left leg during practice. He has been prescribed a rest period of two weeks. His stable master Tomozuna Oyakata, however, has stated that Kaisei will rejoin the competition after a few days of resting his leg.
We at Tachiai hope to see Kaisei healthy again soon.

Wow. Three of my favorites down in the last two days!! I wish those three all the best and hope they recover soon and experience a healthy 2019.
A real shame when he’d just battled his way up to komusubi
According to reports he injured his left leg on Tuesday. He may rejoin the basho later.
I’m betting he will. Two weeks in the “keiko recovery space-time continuum” means he’ll be rejoining by Thursday.
Too bad, this could have been a good basho for him to aim higher with Hakuho and Kakuryu already out.’
I didn’t know Hakuo and Kakuryu is joining this basho. That’s a big shock though. Sad.
SORRY I NEED TO MAKE CORRECTION ON MY LAST COMMENT THAT I SHOULD HAVE WRITE AS
i didn’t know Hakuo and Kakuryu is not able to join this basho. That’s a big shock in fact. Sad.
